Gale Mansion Undergoes Renovation

The Gale Mansion’s classic Italian Renaissance architecture is a draw for many couples seeking a romantic backdrop for their wedding day. Now that the mansion’s ballroom has undergone a major renovation, however, couples are finding the space even more appealing for their nuptials.

In years past, the venue could accommodate intimate seated receptions. If a couple also wanted to get married on site, the ceremony had to be held outside in the garden. The recent renovation, however, overhauled the mansion’s out-of-date and rarely used auditorium, turning it into a modern ballroom that can comfortably seat 200. It boasts twinkling chandeliers, wide windows draped in luxurious fabrics, a beautiful wood floor perfect for dancing and a stage big enough to hold a grand piano or 17-piece band. Plus, a new elevator was installed to ensure easy access for all guests.

The space that used to host receptions is still available for smaller weddings and can now also serve as space for an indoor ceremony before the reception kicks off in the expanded ballroom down the hall.
